The AYA Neo is a handheld gaming computer with an AMD Ryzen 5 4500U Renoir processor, AMD Radeon Vega 6 graphics, and a 7 inch touchscreen display sandwiched between two game controllers.
Now the makers of this little gaming PC have announced they’ll launch an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for international customers in February and hope to begin shipping the Neo to backers in April.
Final pricing hasn’t been revealed yet, but a limited number of “Super early bird” backers will be able to reserve an AYA Neo for as little as $699.
That’s $99 less than the crowdfunding price for an entry-level GPD Win 3, an Intel Tiger Lake-powered handheld gaming PC that’s also coming soon, and which went up for pre-order on Indiegogo this week for $799 and up.
GPD’s little computer has a faster GPU, and more storage space than the AYA Neo. It also has a slide-up display that covers a capacitive touch keyboard (that’s kind of horrible to actually use).
The Neo doesn’t have a keyboard, but it has a larger, slightly higher-resolution display and an AMD Renoir processor which comes out ahead in some CPU benchmarks, even if lags behind in graphics horsepower.
